This is a difficult reading, but one in which it is fairly easy to relate to the emotional experience of the children of Israel. It’s easy for me to see myself among those whose patience is worn out by the journey, tempted to join the complainers. As with every Lenten journey, we are called to accompany Jesus into the desert, preparing ourselves for the rediscovery that the stone has been rolled away and the tomb is empty. And here in the fifth week, this Lenten journey can seem particularly long, especially coming on the heels of the global pandemic. It is tempting to fall into self-pity and rationalization of our complaints. Today, let’s remember: just yesterday the daily light outlasted the darkness for the first time since September, the promise of the resurrection is less than two weeks away, and we have every reason to be thankful.
